Default Firefox users lead the way in keeping up to date

A new study from the security research firm Secunia has revealed that out of all popular applications that users are most likely to have on their computers, Firefox is the most likely to be kept up to date in terms of security patches. In a comparison of web browsers, only 5.19 percent of users of Firefox 2 were not fully patched, compared with 9.61 percent and 5.4 percent for Internet Explorer 6 and 7 and a surprising 11.96 percent of Opera 9 users.
